I deleted the bot account. There is a filter, captchas, etc, but it's kind of a never ending arms race. I switched captchas from the default to reCaptcha, hopefully that will help.

o-o Why do all the bots have to target the small forums, and not like... atheism plus or free thought blogs.
(For the record, I am an atheist, but A+ and ftb are basically ... dictatorship in forum/blog form.)

Because this forum has inadequateanti-spam bot measures, and no mods to delete spambot posts?

I had switched from the default captcha to reCaptcha a few weeks ago and it seems to have reduced spam frequency somewhat. Captchas in general seem to be quickly becoming obsolete unfortunately. I just switched forum registration to require custom Q&A which is apparently much more effective.
